Canto 25:13. Version six of Wm Blake’s illustration of the centaur Cacus who pursued Vanni Fucci.

Without speaking another word, he fled,
And then I saw a centaur, full of fury,
Come shouting, "Where, where is that bitter beast?"

I do not think Maremma has as many
Snakes as the centaur carried on his croup
Right up to where our human shape begins.
[Canto 25, lines 16-21, translated by James Finn Cotter.]
